"If You Wanna" as written by Justin James Hayward-young, Freddie Cowan, Arni Hjorvar and Peter Robinson....
Well I don't want to wake up in the morning
But I've got to face the day
That's what all the friends I do not like as much as you say

I don't want to do things independently
But I can't make you stay
That's what all the friends I do not like as much as you say

But if you wanna come back it's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back
Do you wanna come back? It's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back to me

Well I don't want to see you with another guy
But the fact is that I may
That's what all the friends I do not like as much as you say

Well give it just another couple months or so
Then you'll be OK
That's what all the friends I do not like as much as you say

All alone, all alone
I, I am on my own
Alone, all alone
I, I am on my own

But if you wanna come back it's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back
Do you wanna come back? It's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back to me

But do you wanna come back it's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back
Do you wanna come back? It's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back
Do you wanna come back? It's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back
Do you wanna come back? It's alright, it's alright
It's alright if you wanna come back to me

    General CommentI love this song so much. The Vaccines are amazing, especially live :)
    I think the lyrics are pretty obvious, he's broken up with somebody but wants them back, his friends keep trying to cheer him up and telling him that he'll get over it but he doesn't want to listen to them because he misses the person so much and his friends seem like nothing compared to them.

    My InterpretationOh wow, no one except maybe one person has made their own interpretation? Well I think the song is saying that he's trying to get over a girl but if she wants to come back to him then it's alright and they can get back together but chances are that's not going to happen. He claims that everyone is telling him to get over her and he's emphasizing that he 'doesn't like them as much' as this girl he loves/likes/whatever. I can really, really relate to this song, especially in my current situation.

    My InterpretationI really like this song because of how peppy it is. The beginning starts out with how all his friends want him to forget about her, but he says he doesnt like them as much.

    General CommentI've been waiting for someone to add this song for ages, and waiting for the album for longer. First heard it September last year and loved it straight away.
    I put this song on a CD for my sister when she left last year, and she came back!
    I love how it is pretty much a heart-broken-break-up song but with such a happy, upbeat tune. It's so catchy!

    Song MeaningJustin Young (Vaccines' frontman) said this about "If You Wanna"
    "This was the first song we wrote for the record. Before this we were more esoterical in nature. This convinced us to become a pop band."
